minocin...doxycycline

Recommended Posts

im just curious to why some derms will prescribe u an antibiotic to be taken twice daily, (50mgx2) and some will prescribe you to just take it once daily at (100mgx1). is there a reason behind taking it twice a day? more derms prescribe twice daily than once daily from what i know of. is it more successful? does it get rid of acne faster?

I should say derms give out 50mg twice aday insted of 100mg once a day because then there is a more constant amount of the drug in your body if you understand what i mean? also theres less chance of side affects as your taking a lesser amount.
